Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero Retires

Multi-division world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero has announced his retirement.

“First, I want to thank God for allowing me to have a wonderful career. I’m a kid from a small town in Gilroy, California, who made it to the mountain top of the boxing world. When I was a young kid growing up, I always believed in myself, but never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined a small-town kid like myself, would be fighting in front of millions of fans.”

“I was blessed to win multiple world titles in four-divisions. A boxer’s career is a long and tough road. Many tears were shed, lots of blood, and tons of sweat. Many miles were traveled, thousands of rounds sparred, none were easy and nothing was ever given to me. I earned everything I got the old fashion way. I never ducked anyone and fought the best fighters in the world. I fought my way through every obstacle to make sure my fans enjoyed every second, of every round, of my fights.” Continue reading “Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero Retires”

Smith fought nine rounds with broken jaw

Popular Long Island light heavyweight contender Joe Smith Jr. (23-2-0, 19 KOs) gritted his way through Saturday’s ten round battle with Sullivan Barrera (20-1-0, 14 KOs) after suffering a broken jaw early in the 2nd round. Even with a broken jaw, Smith Jr. dug deep to fire away at the skilled Barrera until the final bell, in which he ultimately fell short by scores of 96-93 and 97-92 twice.

“After spending part of Saturday night at the UCLA Medical Center, Joe will have surgery later this week in New York and we’ll know more then about a time frame for his full recovery. We congratulate Sullivan Barrera on his victory,” said Smith’s promoter Joe DeGuardia.

Upset in Juarez: Villalba smashes Garcia in one

By David Finger

In a stunning upset, Esteban “Tremendo” Villalba scored a first round TKO over El Paso’s Josue Garcia Friday night in Ciudad Juarez, just south of the border with El Paso, Texas. Garcia had lost a ten round decision in his last fight against Craig Callaghan in a fight for the WBF US welterweight title and had never been stopped before Friday in a career that spanned twelve fights. But although Villalba, a native of Juarez, came into the fight with a less than impressive record, he has shown tremendous power in the past.

Horn Sr. criticizes Team Pacquiao

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Jeff Horn Sr., who is the father of WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn, talks to Fightnews.com® and says the WBO review board validated the scorecard of judge Waleska Roldan (117-111 for Horn) and also mentions that his son is currently in Las Vegas on holiday with his wife.

The 59-year-old elder Horn also sent an open letter to Fightnews.com® saying Manny Pacquiao should ponder dumping his corner team because of the risk of “self-sabotage” going into the rematch with his son slated for November in Australia.

“As the dust settles after the controversial but credible win by Jeff to snatch the WBO title from Manny Pacquiao, attention now turns to the potential rematch.

“To say that the lack of sportsmanship shown by Pacquiao since fight day has been disappointing would be an understatement. However, a look into the farcical and unprofessional performance of the Pacquiao team immediately prior to and during the Battle of Brisbane beggars belief.

WBC super featherweight champion Miguel “El Alacran” Berchelt (32-1, 28 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over former world champion number and one contender Takashi Miura (31-4-2, 24 KOs) on Saturday night at The ‘Fabulous’ Forum in Inglewood, California. Berchelt got off to a fast start as he dropped Miura with a 1-2 combo in the opening round. Working off the jab Berchelt boxed as Miura stalked. The jab worked effectively for Berchelt as he blinded Miura and followed up with big shots but the Japanese fighter landed some thudding punches.

The Mexican landed a huge right in round eight. Shortly after Miura landed a rabbit punch on Berchelt. Heading into the championship rounds Berchelt fought conservatively keeping his distance utilizing the jab frustrating Miura. The final round saw the two trading in center ring. In the end, the judges scored the bout 120-109, 119-108, and 116-111. Continue reading “Berchelt beats Miura, still WBC 130lb champ”

Corrales barely retains WBA 130lb title

WBA super featherweight champion Jezreel Corrales (22-1, 8KO) barely escaped with his world title in his first defense with a majority decision against tough Mexican Robinson Castellanos (22-12, 14KO) on Saturday night at the Forum in Los Angeles. Castellanos, coming off an upset victory over Yuriorkis Gamboa, twice floored Corrales in the third round. Corrales, to his credit, not only survived the knockdowns but fought back strongly and knocked down Castellanos in the seventh round with a straight left counter.

Castellanos fought the majority of the fight with a cut over his eye from an accidental head butt and at the start of the tenth round suffered a huge gash under his eye from yet another head butt. The ringside physician advised the referee to stop the bout – and with that, it went to the scorecards. Judges scored the bout 94-94 even, 94-93 for Corrales and, inexplicably, 96-92 for Corrales to give him the majority decision victory. Continue reading “Corrales barely retains WBA 130lb title”
